 Te Ahurea o Te Kura (Kura Identity)

 


Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Wānanga Whare Tapere o Takitimu was established in 1994 and officially gazetted in 1996. Our wharekura (secondary component) was gazetted in 2016. We are a natural development of Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Wānanga Whare Tapere o Takitimu. Together with the initiatorof the vision, Te Wānanga Whare Tapere o Takitimu, the Tertiary component, it offers an educational philosophy ‘from the womb to the tomb.’

Our kura is distinctive from mainstream schools because of our philosophies, principles and practices. We are committed to the preservation and maintenance of the Māori language, a tāonga of guaranteed protection under the Crown.

The board of trustees, whānau and kaiako work collectively to provide an education that allows each mokopuna to reach their full potential, socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally. In an environment, that affirms their identity as Māori. Along with Marau a Te Aho Matua as in the government framework, the aspirations of Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Wānanga Whare Tapere o
